Chris Brown

He's No Gang Member

But Bloods Are Cool With Him Representin'

Chris Brown is no gangbanger -- no matter how many gang signs he throws -- but one set of Bloods say they're cool with him acting like one ... because he's paid his dues in the hood.

Chris has aligned himself with the Fruit Town Piru set ... dropping Bloods references on Instagram ... but leaders of the Fruits (who'll remain unnamed) tell us Chris was never officially initiated.

The Fruits are down with Chris claiming he's a Blood because:

- He's hired several of them to work for him ... giving their Compton community an economic boost
- Chris comes to the hood and hangs out with them
- He shot a music video in the neighborhood ... and even included some of them in the vid
- He donated a thousand pairs of new shoes to Compton kids

Plus ... they don't mind the national publicity they've been getting.

This IS L.A. after all.

But rules are rules. You don't want people to think they can buy their way into your gang, do you? What kind of white collar junk is that? You gotta jump him in like everyone else? Go for it. Take pictures.

Really TMZ !!!???? Giving press to gang bangers like they're upstanding citizens rather than stealing, killing' drug dealing neighborhood destroying low life's is unconscionable and Chris Brown is nothing more than a wanna be punk who should be ashamed of himself.

Chris Brown is nothing more than a clown and setting an extremely bad and dangerous example to children. The gang signs and anger management issues should stop. Beating up a woman is about the lowest thing a man could do and he still needs to learn a lesson to respect woman and the court of law.
